After being on remand for the past five months on an attempted murder charge, Kurt Kendall, 29 of Lot 477 Non Pareil, East Coast Demerara, had the matter against him discharged yesterday after the virtual complainant told the court that he was not going to proceed with the matter.
It is alleged that Kendall while being together with others on February 3, at Mandela Avenue, discharged a loaded firearm at Christopher Marks, with intent to commit murder. He was not required to plead to the charge after it was read to him.
Yesterday when the matter was called before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman, in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts the virtual complainant stood before the Magistrate and told her that he does not wish to proceed with the matter since he is thankful for life.
Kendall was convicted in 2011and spent three years in prison on a robbery under arms charge.
Kendall was also before the court on several robberies under arms charges. He was accused of robbing Elizabeth Seepaul of $1.2M and a further $2.5M on May 29, 2015, at Thomas Lands, Georgetown. He was allegedly armed with a gun at the time of the robbery.
The monies were the property of Wings Aviation and Fly Jamaica respectively. It was also alleged that on the same day in question, he robbed Christopher Ali at gunpoint and relieved him of $1.6 million, property of Fly Jamaica.
He pleaded not guilty to those charges and the matters got dismissed against him due to insufficient evidence.
